|50 Years Old - Before and After|
The last post of 2013, I thought I'd leave you with a little magic. 2013 was a year of turning 50 - many of my friends, myself, OF COURSE Doctor Who, skateboarding, Johnny Depp, Michael Jordan, Brad Pitt, even Martin Luther King Jr's I Have a Dream speech, hypertext, the nanosecond, and the zip code all reached this major milestone - along with my little Christmas tree.
Every year I adorn my little tree with it's original ornaments and offer it pride of place, but even I had to admit it was looking a tad threadbare. Right, I thought, 50 years, it's time for a little makeover.

I had a few scraps of tiny bead garland so I added this in red and white and secured the original ornaments more permanently on the tree. I'd hate for them to fall and break, and tempted though I was to make new ornaments with some of my lovely beads, the point of this exercise was to return the tree to it's original magical condition.

I love my little tree. I've always loved my little tree. But now people can see it a little more like I've always envisioned her. Magical!
Happy New Year everyone, and all the very best for 2014!
